Saint-Gobain North America

MALVERN, PASaint-Gobain North America has announced a new partnership with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. Good360 ranks as the second top charity on Forbes’ List of America’s Top 100 Charities. This collaboration aims to bolster disaster preparation and relief efforts across the United States and Canada.

The partnership reflects Saint-Gobain’s global mission of “Making the World a Better Home.” The company will invest resources to support communities recovering from natural disasters and integrate corporate social responsibility into its operations.

As part of this commitment, the Saint-Gobain North America Foundation has provided a $60,000 grant. Additionally, the company will donate light and sustainable building materials and volunteer hours for disaster relief efforts managed by Good360.

Good360 offers a comprehensive approach to disaster support, covering preparation, immediate response, and long-term recovery. This aligns with Saint-Gobain’s goal to aid individuals and communities impacted by disasters as they work towards recovery.

“In 2020, as devastating floods hit communities around our Life Sciences plant in Beaverton, Michigan, Saint-Gobain turned to Good360 to help move key building supplies into the area to help rebuild,” said Joe Bondi, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed Siding and President of the Saint-Gobain North America Foundation. “Through that experience and others like it, we have seen firsthand the vital role of Good360 to ensure individuals and families have access to essential materials in their time of greatest need. We are proud to begin this important partnership.”

Jim Alvey, Good360’s Vice President of Disaster Recovery, emphasized the impact of the partnership. “The funding from Saint-Gobain will strengthen Good360’s ability to source and distribute building supply donations to get survivors back in their homes faster. Our combined efforts will amplify our response to all phases of disaster response and recovery,” he said. “We are truly grateful for the partnership.”
